Self-acceptance is accepting my present position in life; the seat of the elder. I have entered into my 70’s, the age of wisdom. I have come to a place of peace with myself and with life, and I have discovered that it is okay to be 70. Aging does not have to be the breaking down of cells and the loss of mental function; it can be the beginning of wisdom. Growing older is a special time of life where old women see visions and old men dream dreams. It is time for us to serve as elders. It is a time to pool our resources of knowledge, wisdom and insight, and bring a message of life to the next generation.
The ultimate purpose is to reach as many people as possible with the hopes of saving lives with resonance and connection to powerful poetry and personal transformation experience.
